Anybody up for a ran- er... story! Story, yeah, story. ( I'll keep it brief.)
I have two computers, one's about 8 years old, the others maybe 2.
The 2 year one is where I keep most of my games and Vocaloids.
It deleted ALL my V2 and V3 voice banks along with the program it's self. My V5's are fine.
Tried to play Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and it had a hard time running. Even on low graphics. (My computer should be able to handle it.) Long story short, it had a virus. I lost Everything I was working on Vocaloid related, and would have never found out if it wasn't for that game. I had about 23 voices and maybe 17 projects. Why I mention this? I need practice tuning and this melody will be put in Vocaloid editor. With some simple lyrics. But I couldn't do that until now! (Sorry about the rant)
I hope everyone's having a good day!

Hole punch paper strips Export

Hey! It looks like this melody can be played offline on a 20 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 20 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!

Aw, sorry to hear you lost your work. I lost a year's worth of photos a while back, it's frustrating :(

Thank-you, I rather lose my work than photos. Lyrics can be recreated easier!

Will we be able to hear your lyrics?

Kaleidiope on April 3, 2019, 12:10 a.m.

They'll be simple, but if anyone would like, I could post the lyrics in a comment once I get them sorted out!
I'm unsure if I can show the actual audio. (I Know how to make a picture open and become a web link.)

Oh neat, in any case I'd love to see the lyrics!

That sucks... Hope it works out for you. :(

And I'd also love to see the lyrics, if possible.

In a Vocaloid editor there's ways to change the pitch, gender, brightness, openness, clearness, along with other settings that make up the tuning.
Oliver tends to say, "T's" and "S's" odd sometimes. So, this was done to help me use and understand him a little better. It's just something simple and a little silly with those sounds:
" It's time to go to sea, we're sailing out to see, it's time to set the sails, let's see what will prevail, it's time to see what lies ahead, you'll never see what lies ahead, you'll never see what could be if you never try again, it's time to set the sails, it's time to follow through, the plans oh! how they grew, with dreams so nice and new, oh how so nice and new."
Sung to the tune of the melody.

Awesome. Lyrics! I can picture a melody when reading them even without the music box playing.

I like it!
